Do you like this music?
YouTube- raghs
It is a Romanian music, I liked the rhythm of music, and synchronization between singers (and plus off course some of the chicks :D)

Hum, you are addressing the sharp beats of music?

I have to agree with 77CDV that the music reflects a lot of Middle Eastern influence, but then the region southern eastern Europe was greatly influenced by middle eastern culture at least during the Ottoman Empire. Not just in the music's beat but in the style of singing. I am not that familiar with the former Soviet Eastern Block country's culture (these counties were kind of "off limits" until fairly recently to guys in intelligence, particularly those with the kind of clearances we held) but judging from their location in the East-West cross roads where they found themselves, I would think the influence of the ebb and flow of the various cultures that came and went in the area would still be very evident.

As always I enjoyed seeing that again another area has a great deal to contribute in the way feminine pulchritude!

^^^ What the heck, a couple of "ouzos," or what ever their local alcoholic beverage is in Romania and it will start sounding better! Actually, the same thing goes for some of the "Blue Grass" I've heard here in the Old Dominion!

The rythm and also the compositional style, both show a lot of Arab influence, courtesy of the Ottoman Empire. Similar to the Moorish influence on Spain.

Yes, you are right. You can see finger print of a a lot of countries and cultures in this video and indeed in this country. First of all, their faces are deeply looking like middle eastern people, but not Arabs. I need to exclude Lebanese, Egyptians, and Syrians, who are not historically from Arab tribe and look different. The music seems like Arabic music, or even Indian. Their language is a combination of Italian, French, Spanish, and Portuguese, surprisingly nothing from east!



And Finally, I can say that Feminism in this video and country is borrowed and imported from West (Hollywood) in recent 20 years! I guess 30 years ago, the girl would be bitten to death by the man, if she behaved so in front of him! :D

Romanian, like Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese, is a Romance language. All are decendents of Latin.

Yes, majority of south east, and central part of euro were under control of Ottoman empire until the end WWI, and you still can see some signs of it in countries in this area. Ottoman Emprie were an Islamic empire, but they were not Arab. Turkish music has some roots in Arabic music, so I guess we can say that musical influence of Ottaman Empire in these regions, some how was influence of Arab music too...

Yeah, you are right, Romanian is a language for itself, I meant it is near to and has commons with these languages. First time that I heard this music, I had no idea about language, and I was curious to know where does it return back, and in wikipedia I could find:
"The official language of Romania is Romanian, an Eastern Romance language related to Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan."
